Subject: Where can I get the best fabric for mens fishing style hats. Date: 6/5/10 2:59 PM

I made a work cap w/side and neck flap last year w/out a pattern and used camophlage fabric (inside out) but would like to find a nice light weight nylon or such that would deflect sun and be light-weight. I know JoAnn does not carry this type of fabric. Has anyone got some of this type online.

The Green Pepper has patterns as well as fabric. Although the fabric isn't online you can order the catalogue and swatches (which I have done). Also, I find this thread on Fabric Sources to be extremely useful. There are several sources listed for outdoor/sports fabric.

Thank you, I have ordered some fabric from Rockywoods.Com. They appear to have some nice outdoor lightweight nylon that is reasonably priced. I only orered 1 yard until I see if I really like it. The swatch pack is $4 which I may order too. I have saved the fabric source listing to my tracking web so I can refer back to it. Sooo many choices.

Well folks , the Rocykwoods.com fabric arrived and is totally not what I expected it to be. It was a nasty browny green and "plastic" appearing. It was listed as a uv protectant nylon fabric. I know I should have ordered a swatch first (lesson learned) . I returned it today, costing me over $5 postage. Someonefrom Rockywoods finally called me back 24 hrs later to give me a return code and tell me ther was a 30% restocking charge. So out of my $8.99 + $3.00 shipping I may get nothing back. Needless to say I will not be using Rockywoods again.
